Article in Catapult and a Walkabout Pit Stop

This is what I consider to be my best poem. It is coupled with a reflection and an image in Catapult.
__________________________
And let me use this Walkabout pit stop simply to reverberate ESPN.com’s headline from late last night and say “Hell Yadier!”*. We are going to the World Series! Nothing quite like being in a hometown bar when your team books that trip.
*I’m not a big proponent of using this phrase in real life, though beyond my upbringing I am not sure why, unless it is this. I sure do like making puns using it, though, visual or otherwise.

Over and Out….

…for a little while. Why? To go for a bit of a walkabout. For how long? Not sure. I am sure I will be tempted to post within the week, perhaps within the day, and I am fickle, so who knows. In the meantime, to fellow St. Louis bloggers and sundry others, “Blog on.” To readers, commenters and lurkers, there may be notice of a Catapult piece posted to fill in the gaps.
So, for a while, “So long. Farewell. Auf weidersehen. Goodbye. Adieu to you and you and you” (which has to be the silliest lyric ever written).

Weekend Edition II-And Two From Monday

OK, so it was a busy weekend with the camera. And hopefully it will be back to words soon too, as this has become somewhat of a photoblog. The camera is away on holiday for a few days (a holiday from me at least), which is good as it was getting a bit addictive…don’t know if you noticed.
